't we recall supervisor olague's item which is item 16. madam clerk, did you call that item? >> clerk calvillo: yes, mr. president. it is now on the floor. >> president chiu: supervisor olague. >> supervisor olague: there were a few -- this is introduced a couple of times, and then we continued it because there were some issues that were outstanding, and so i'll just go ahead and mention how some of those were resolved. the first thing, the issue of defining when planning staff reports are required to include the dashboard has basically been settled. so the changes are on page 4, line 24. and it mentions they will outline staff reports to the planning commission historic preservation commission and the board of supervisors so that's kind of stated there, on all proposed projects, it mentions it in detail. also, there was this -- the big dispute was really about the naming -- or defining of housing above 120% or from 120 to dj), . some -- i believe that it's the planning department, i might be wrong, that defines it as middle income housing, but it's the -- what do you call it -- the m
. >> in terms of goals and objectives colleagues? we heard from commissioner olague about -- i think a very, very good issue which is the issue of committee appointments and the structure where you have split appointments as opposed to simply mayoral appointments and how that works. i think that is one possibility. commissioner avalos. >> just a vague idea that i want to put out there that could be looked at by lafco maybe. one is we talk about san francisco's growing economy, and it's especially growing in the tech sector. there was a report in the paper today from the bay area council study and uc berkeley study there is a great multiplying effect happening right now with jobs created but i'm wondering if the city having greater or in the water to make sure that we are building a pipeline between long-term local residents especially comments of color with jobs in the tech center would be something that we look at possibly, but that's an interest i have. there is an example in our packet that talks about looking at trees and the issue of relinquishment right now in san francisco and t
meeting that we will have commissioner olague sitting in as a member of lafco for at least for the time being, and so i just -- on a very personal note i want to take this opportunity to thank commissioner olague for her service on the local agency formation commission. it really has been an honor and you have provided a tremendous contribution. i think it's definitely the case that community choice aggregation would not be where it is today without your support and involvement, and it's really -- it's been an honor and a pleasure and you know it is my hope that you continue to be involved in lafco, and i just want to say i'm very grateful to you. it really has been an honor for me to serve with you so i wanted to take the opportunity to note that. commissioner avalos. >> commissioner schmeltzer. >> actually commissioner schmeltzer, did you want to say anything? >> i wanted to concur and thank commissioner olague for her work on lafco and other matters. we have one more board meeting together as well, and it's been great. i am actually really proud of the work of passing clean power
. supervisor mar, present. supervisor olague, present. supervisor wiener, present. mr. president, you have a quorum. >> president chiu: thank you. ladies and gentlemen, could you please join us in the pledge of allegiance. >> i pledge allegiance to the united states of america to the republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. >> president chiu: colleagues, we have october 16, 2012 board meeting minutes. could i have a motion to approve. motion by supervisor campos, suggested by supervisor chu. those are approved. madam clerk, are there any communications? >> clerk calvillo: there are no communications. >> president chiu: could you read the consent agenda. >> clerk calvillo: items 1 through 12 are considered routine. if a member would like to discuss an item it shall be removed and considered separately. >> president chiu: would anyone like to sever any of these items? roll call vote on items 1 through 12. >> clerk calvillo: supervisor mar, aye. supervisor olague, aye. supervisor wiener, aye. supervisor avalos, aye. supervisor campos, a
. supervisorn%(olague. >> supervisor olague: are we going back to the -- >> president chiu: roll call. >> supervisor olague: i will submit. >> clerk calvillo: supervisor elsbernd. supervisor campos. >> supervisor campos: thank it is with a great deal of sadness that i do an in memorium or howard l. wallace and ask that we adjourn the meeting in his name. and i know that supervisor avalos and president chiu wanted supervisor olague, and it might be appropriate to do it on behalf of the board, the entire board. but howard wallace was simply an institution in san francisco, the labor community but also the lgbt community and so many communities that have been fighting for social justice. it is true that howard's sister's brothers in the queer labor and elder human rights movements had the sad duty to report his death on wednesday, november 14 at the beautiful -- vista manner in san francisco. he was a veteran of social movement since his high school years in denver, colorado, where -- when he became an activist. he was born on august 29, 1936 worcester, massachusetts and then to denver w
that trucks, including emergency vehicle, could make those turns. >> supervisor olague: basically there are no longer two bulbouts there on that street. it's just been -- one has been eliminated. >> correct. >> supervisor olague: and then the other issue that someone mentioned was the traffic study. so i wonder if you could comment on that, that there was no traffic study but many of us were under the impression that there was a traffic study. and it seems to me -- and i was curious to know who conducted that study because there was some comment that it wasn't independent. i'm not quite sure what's meant by that but if you could elaborate a little bit that would be helpful. >> like i mentioned we've been studying this for a year now but it was nine months in the planning process and we conducted traffic counts, and it was mta staff who collected traffic count data. we had an independent party help us collect some of the bike data, but we also collected bike data by ourselves. we collect our own speed surveys. and then our ma engineers built a traffic model, a simulation model, usi
that commissioner olague's going to be out there organizing seniors, environmental justice around issues and so many things she has already done so we will continue to see you in city hall i know. >> yeah and i was grateful to be part of the clean power sf conversation because i kind of harp how i was following this issue around sustainability and clean power and just really kind of handing that issue back to consumers rather than allowing certain corporations to continue to monopolize it and promote type of energy use that isn't sustainable so whether it's clean power sf or the ideas from germany and free berg i am proud to you part of that conversation and vote for it on the board level and one thing i regret not being part of the municipal bank conversation and i think that will be interesting and from a nerdy perspective. it's not exciting to most people -- or at least i hope it isn't. >> commissioner schmeltzer. >>i hope you come talk to us about it anyway. >> yeah. >> i do believe that for me that the vote on community choice aggregation was one of the most important votes
: colleagues, any questions? okay. at this time, why don't we -- supervisor olague. >> supervisor olague: one of the issues that keep coming up is the issue of the bulbouts. what is your response to that. >> as it was stated in the appeal, i believe supervisor, is what you're asking is that bulbouts will slow down traffic to the point that they should be analyzed as increasing traffic congestion. and really bulbouts, which are the corner widening of the sidewalk in order to increase visibility of people before they step off the curb and also, yes, to slow down cars as they turn it but really we looked at it and even if you looked at it in detail, and you said a car was slowing down it might be by a second and not every car is turning at every intersection where the bulbouts are. yes hopefully they will slow down to increase safety but it's not in any measurable way that it will increase congestion. >> supervisor olague: i think they were referring specifically to the two that were going to be i believe at broderick and fell. is that right? >> right. >> supervisor olague: and they said there w
? thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> former supervisor olague, thank you for bringing this important topic at this time. in the past after many, many years ross mikarami was instrumental in having a hearing about the certificates. one thing leads to the other. now, today i attended the meeting on the successor agency to redevelopment and you know that you are creating yet another commission on, they call it infrastructure and investment, you know? now, while we were attending the other meeting, not once were these people who were appointed on this investment and infrastructure attended that meeting. now what's happening here, supervisor christina olague, when you speak the truth, people don't like it. there were a bunch of whoever you call it who were sponsored by the machine, you know the machine, much like the mafia. much like the mafia. now today you've heard a few and there are many people at home and maybe you should go on kapu, you know, and talk about this. have a series of meetings. that's the only thing we can do. because these people are banked on treat
only aspects of the project that were outlined in the bike plan eir. >> supervisor olague: traffic lanes aren't removed. >> no. it's just only the oak street and am commute traffic lane being removed. >> supervisor olague: for a couple of hours? >> that's just turning -- they're using -- literally create that bike lane. >> supervisor olague: thank you. >> president chiu: colleagues, any other questions to the mta? seeing none, why don't we hear now from members of the public that wish to speak on behalf of the project sponsor, ask folks if you can keep your comments to less than two minutes. first speaker please. >> my name is lawrence lee, i'm on the board of lower haight merchants and neighbors association. i would like to reiterate that yeah, we were involved with extensive outreach that the city put on. and during all that outreach, members of the community were invited to weigh in on various options, and elements. and the solution that was eventually approved was something that we were in favor of, which included minor alterations to the existing conditions that namely traded
san francisco defines middle class. supervisor olague stated that the planning department says the middle class is 120 to 150% ami. it's not the planning department it's the housing element and the planning code. housing at 180% of af mi and above and defines middle class income housing as housing affordable to households making between 120 and 150% of median income. then we look at planning code section 4001 which defines middle income household as a household whose combined annual gross income for all members is between 120% and 150% of the local median income. so as a matter of policy, and as a matter of law, in san francisco, 120 toñjp 150% of area median income is middle class. so why on earth would anyone would try to strip out the reference to that income range6 as being middle class is something that i don't really understand. i also do not think that the mayor's office of housing has indicated that 120 to 150% of ami is upper middle income housing. when i did a hearing earlier this year about middle class housing there was a particular mayor's office office of housin
they like to encourage their use. what supervisor olague's ordinance would do is take properties currently zoned nc3, which stands for neighborhood cooperative moderate scale and turn them into the fillmore mcd the boundaries of the ncd fit within the old boundaries of the redevelopment area for the western addition. i believe it went all the way to bush street, which is where this neighborhood district would end. the ordinance would also remove the minimum parking controls and institute maximum parking controls, this is a trend throughout the city and fits with the city's transit first policy. it would down zone sign requirements from nc3 standards to nc2 standards, and allow a 5 foot high bonus for properties that are 40 and 50 feet from the area. the supervisor would like this continued to the beginning of this year so we will probably be asking for a continuance this thursday. the department supports the creation of an individually named ncd area on fillmore street. it helps preserve the character of the neighborhood and also helps preserve a sense of identification. we are asking
olague whose matter it is and by your staff that the public hearing -- >> we are not acting on it today. if you could continue your public comment. >>> that's the point. that at such time that it is considered at a future, i just want that confirmation from you that public comment will be allowed when you have it continued. >> yes, we will have public comment when it's continued probably to december 3rd, but that's going to be the motion after public comment is over. >>> thank you very much. >>> hi, my name is sally stevens. i'm the chair of sf dog. we support active recreational uses and adamantly oppose any move to give sharp park to [speaker not understood]. it is suing san francisco to try to force us to close the sharp park golf course and give it to the gg & a. the lawsuit is in the courts right now, but preliminary [speaker not understood]. this resolution will help their lawsuit. a cynical point by them to get you supervisors to do what they don't seem able to get the courts to do, to push their extremist plan to close sharp park golf course and give it to the [speaker not under
this morning, you know? it's the same thing. so, supervisor olague, keep on doing what you have done before, you did well at the planning department. keep on doing the right thing wherever you are. thank you very much. >> next speaker. >> supervisors, daniel landry for the record. first of all, supervisor olague, it's been a long time and i want to thank you for sponsoring this and like always you've been right there in the forefront for a lot of issues and things just from me to you, i appreciate all the work you have done and i hate to see that it's going to be a transition, however that's how things happen, but we're going to still work hard and (inaudible) our efforts. i'm born and raised in fillmore, 44 years, and i also have a business in fillmore, i have friends, family, i've been there all my life. and for what i can say what's happening to the fillmore, what happened to the fillmore, i suggested to, like, supervisor mercorini a few years ago, just like we were speaking to sam jordan's a few minutes ago, the fillmore can be considered a historic district. all the facts proves th
by supervisor olague. on the motion to amend, supervisor avalos. >> supervisor avalos: thank you, president chiu. i will be supporting this amendment. it makes much sense because i was very concerned that the original resolution overturned probably a year's work, i think longer than a year's work, of the, you know, hundreds of young people who worked, organized across san francisco, to get a policy of free muni for youth, at least for low income youth. i believe that at one point i remember the author of this resolution had discussed well why don't we make it for low income youth and we can support free muni for low income youth and now we have a resolution that pretty much says this should only be used for maintenance. so i'm really happy to support amendments that include, you know, prioritizing free muni for low income youth and maintenance. needed to actually help bring up the next generation of muni users. i know we talk about effectiveness all the time, and i think that there could be no other effective way of making sure that young people are going to be riding muni and riding muni withou
message to the people of san francisco. >> president chiu: supervisor olague -- and before you respond, supervisor olague, our clerk wanted to clarify that the additional language of or other available data you will make that amendment to all references where it refers to data on households earning approximately 120 to 150%. >> supervisor olague: yes. >> president chiu: okay. so hopefully that's clear to our city attorney. supervisor olague. >> supervisor olague: basically, i think what's important is that the reporting and the analysis capture 120 to 150. originally, the reporting was only going to go up to 120 because that is kind of the standard -- the bar that's set i then, you know, there was an amendment proposed to increase it to 150, which i don't think there was any disputing that any debate. i think yeah, we agreed, it should be included in there. but there still seemed to be some -- i don't know if disagreement is the right word. there seems to be some semantics going on here around, you know, is it upper moderate income housing, which is what my understanding was, that mayo
. supervisor olague. >> supervisor olague: i just wanted to move to affirm the exemption determination of the san francisco mta and agency fell and oak streets bikeways projects so my motion would be to affirm the determination of the planning department that the san francisco fell and oak project is exempt from environmental review. >> president chiu: motion made toaire firm the categorical exemption tabling items 42, 43, seconded by supervisor campos. discussion? supervisor wiener. >> supervisor wiener: thank you, mr. president. you know, i just want to -- i think i made this point when i was questioning the appellant about how important it is to understand that this appeal is not an appeal on the merits, that is not what this board does. the mta board directors was entrusted by the voters to make these policy decisions. and that's where a lot of the arguments were raised tonight in opposition to this project are i'm sure were directed at the mta board of directors and that was the appropriate forum. this is about ceqa. and one can love or hate this project, but this is about our app
: thank you. supervisor olague. >> supervisor olague: i'm just going to mention that i receive e-mails all the time with people that are upset that there are homeless people in the neighborhood. i probably get more e-mails protesting that than just about anything and i would be the last person to ever legislate banning homeless people from certain parts of the city. so and so i'm still trying to understand what is so unique and so different about what's happened that we need this now, even though for all these decades that has not been the case. and the second point is i want to be very clear. i don't know that anyone is saying taking care of the little things that happen in a neighborhood are not important. those things are what make the life of a neighborhood work. the pothole is as important as any piece of legislation because it is critical to the daily life of that individual. but what we are saying is that if i have a pothole in my neighborhood, i am not going to come to the board of supervisors, and pass citywide legislation to address it. the question is whether or not this legisla
